Ginger Snap Crafts: {cookies} in a jar

{cookies} in a jar


I got this recipe from our church’s craft night!
It is delicious!  We made it even more yummy by
substituting the chocolate chips for butterscotch chips! Yum!


You’ll need:
quart size jar
2 cups flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 cups butterscotch chips


In a large bowl mix flour, baking soda and white sugar.

Then arrange the ingredients in the jar as follows:

(I used a piece of cardstock taped into a funnel.  Made it much easier!)

Bottom layer: half of the flour mixture
Next layer: 1 cup butterscotch chips


Next layer: 1/4 cup brown sugar


Next layer:  the rest of the butterscotch chips
(I had to use the end of a spoon to push the ingredients down!)


Next layer: the rest of the brown sugar


Top layer:  remaining flour mixture


Then I added a bow & card that reads:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Empty contents of jar into a large bowl.
  • In a separate bow, combine 3/4 cup butter, 2 eggs and 1 tsp vanilla.  Beat until creamy.
  • Stir butter mixture into dry mixture until thoroughly blended.
  • Drop by tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.

Yum!  Cookies {in a jar}
